I was a little uncomfortable, but right at the table yesterday for mother's day brunch I fed my DS. I am so proud of myself!!

It gets easier with practice and experience. Soon it will become second nature- baby's hungry, we'll just sit down (or stand up, whatever your preference) and nurse.

Good for you! It does get easier. I used to try to find a spot out of the way, but I recently fed DS right at the table in a restaurant. I don't think anyone even noticed.

When ds was little I used the table like a boppy and put him on it and brought my boob to him. It was, uh let's say, distracting to servers in resturants
